Do You Want To Be A Freelance Writer WAHM?

 
There are so many opportunities on the web, some are real and some are bogus. You might want to test the waters first by starting out as a freelance writer WAHM (Work At Home Mom). It is one of the most flexible and cost effective way to start your online career as it does not require start-up costs which you might find on most of the online jobs available on the web.

You do not need to have a college degree to be a writer as you can choose first the topics you are interested in like fashion, arts, technology, food, travel and the likes. There is no difficulty in doing something you love. Aside from your desire to write about something you are interested in, you would need the following:

  • Personal computer / laptop
  • Internet connection
  • Website or a blog site for showcase of your writing ability

You do not need to have a professional experience in writing as well but you have to know one important thing in web writing. Most of your article should have SEO (Search Engine Optimization) or strategically placed keywords that are required by all clients to create traffic in your blog or article.

You may want to start writing for your own blog to practice your writing ability. This will also be an important site to show you prospective clients if they ask about writing experiences or samples.

With the basic information posted above, you are now ready to look for a client. You may want to look for a blogger (or a blogger friend to start with) who needs a writer. An experienced friend can be a great help to point out the mistakes you might have made for your first article. You would need pointers from them.

Note that the most important key in freelance writing is HAVING THE TIME and DETERMINATION to finish it and to earn money for your family.
